Peach and cream

The flowers of Lois Choice peonies are full-petalled. The incredibly delicate petals are peach and pink on the outer ring, turn peach and cream halfway through, and, eventually, turn back to peach and pink in the centre. This peony can turn a bit top-heavy, so it won’t stand completely upright by itself.

Challenge

The plants from this peony gets easily damaged if the stems are cut larger than 40 cm. Those short stems can make Lois Choice a challenging peony to handle. But don’t let those short stems discourage you; you’d miss out on of the best peonies available.

Origin

This variety was bred in 1977 by Chris Laning and was registered in 1993.
